Irate police officer interrupts Critical Mass
During the March Critical Mass bike ride, an angry Pittsburgh police officer sped through the group of riders near Penn Circle in East Liberty.  Shortly after, several more officers arrived, provoking a stand-off with the crowd. 

In the end, several riders were given citations, and a young bystander who was not a part of the ride was taken away in a police cruiser.  The entire event was videorecorded by a news crew from WQED-TV's OnQ program.
